The First Colonoscopy

Yesterday (May 2nd) my wife had a colonoscopy. The found a small tumor about 30cm into her colon. All other parts of the colon are within normal limits. The rectum is normal (thank God). So this was a good outcome. The tumor is not the size of a bowling ball or anything. It's about half the diameter of her colon. I guess she just was unlucky that it grew so quickly through the wall and went to the liver. They biopsied the mass and marked it with dye.

Last night she had a fever of 101.5 and after calling the doctor, took some tylenol and it went down.
